De Spiritu Sancto / To the Holy Spirit

by Hildegard von Bingen

English version by Jerry Dybdal and Matthew Fox
Original Language Latin

Holy spirit, making life alive,
moving in all things, root of all created being,
cleansing the cosmos of every impurity, effacing guilt,
anointing wounds.
You are lustrous and praiseworthy life,
You waken and re-awaken everything that is.

-- from Hildegard of Bingen's Book of Divine Works with Letters and Songs, by Hildegard of Bingen / Edited by Matthew Fox
